Participants of the Percussion Studio of Christian Dierstein & Håkon Stene

Discovering the timbres of objects. Establishing tactile relationships with the objects – with analogue music devices (Meadowcroft), geothermal power plants (Atli), nylon strings and plastic cups (Maierhof), cymbals (Pisaro), pine cones and table tennis tables (Rykowa), jackets (Bauckholt) and heads (Zhao). These elements appear in the special selection of pieces with which the participants in the Percussion Studio of Christian Dierstein and Håkon Stene will present themselves. This concert will feature works by composers who can largely dispense with conventional percussion instruments, focusing instead on movement, performance and the percussive use of objects.
